After trying to book a holiday with a friend unsuccessfully due to my friends being unreliable .I am now focusing on going on my own to Patong over xmas and New Year.I dont like being in UK over this period due to some family bereavements that have happened recently.
I wanted to know does anybody recommend any hotels around this area that are close enough to the action but not too close if you know what I mean(somewhere I can chill out).Where I can also meet fellow single travelers?My budget is a max of 30 GBP per night.I would like a pool and a bar but not looking for anything too extravagant,mainly want a good atmosphere with like minded people.I am now mid 30's but I'm young at heart some people might say childish ;-)I have read on here that it may be best to only book a few nights accommodation then look whilst you are there????
Also are there any activities/places that are recommended??I think I will be going Scuba Diving to finish a course that I started last year in sharm Sea Bees Diving would seem to be a good choice from the reviews??
One more question where is best place to exchange currency in the Uk or in Thailand
